Default What am I supposed to do with my looted vehicles now!?

Ok, to my understanding looted vehicles are now gone and we have looted wagons and buffed up battlewagons.

So what am I supposed to do with my vehicles? I have a leman russ, basilisk, hellhound, and a griffon. The only one I don't want to touch is my looted leman russ because I'm proud of my conversion and paint job. The hellhound is already converted from a chimera and looks nice but really... does a massive gas tank supplied flame thrower have a place in the new orks codex? Converting the basilisk and griffon shouldn't be a problem, but are they big enough for a battlewagon with some simple additions?

The leman russ is structurally the same as its guard counterpart only it's orky looking. I think it looks to big to be a looted wagon but possibly not big and transporty enough for a battlewagon. Oh and I really don't want to do anything to it.

Any suggestions?

Well, the Leman Russ could easily be a Looted Wagon with an 'ard case and a boomgun. Looted Wagons can add on two weapons, rokkit launchas and big shootas, as well as the main gun. So, the side sponsors could could as big shootas. The front gun could just be decorative, I wouldn't want to remove it off a finished Leman Russ.

The Hellhound could be a Looted Wagon with an 'ard case and a skorcha. The front gun could count as a big shoota. You may want to model on another gun onto it, if you wanted both addons.

Same sort of thing with your other lotted vehicles, shouldn't be too hard to justify existing weapons or easy enough to make some minor conversions to fit into the new entry on them.

The official GW stance is: Use them in apocalypse games.

You could, but you could just as easily start the game down 100 points and save yourself the time

Call them Battlewagons. The Looted Wagon entry is awful.

Battlewagons (of the shoots pie plates variety) are interesting, for me the jury is still out on them. Ork melee success is highly dependent on forcing the enemy out of CC formation. Pie Plates are the only way to get that done, and I think the heavy slot is easier to lose than the HQ for the SAG.

The only problem is the price. I'm undecided about battlewagons vs. more super infantry.

Looted vehicles a no-no? Damn. :P Should have paid attention to rumours and stuff before buying that Basilisk. : Well, at least my Battlewagon/Looted Wagon will be armed with one hell of a turret. ;D
